Desk Top Construction: 

Note the heavy duty construction of the Republic desk top. The top plate is 
of 18 gage, reinforced by four longitudinal 18 gage members and four trans- 
verse 16 gage flanged channel reinforcing members. All welded together to give 
maximum strength. 



Combining Smart Styling With Practical Utility and Versatility 



Engineers, artists and office efficiency specialists col- 
laborated with steel fabrication specialists in the design 
of Republic 5000 Series Steel Desks and Tables, seeking 
to develop "the most convenient and comfortable, most 
versatile and attractive" office furniture ever offered. 

ARTISTICALLY, they set a new standard in office 
furnishings, deftly blending simple, direct lines to com- 
bine striking beauty and efficiency. The manner in 
which the center drawer and sliding reference shelves 
are concealed in the deep roll of the top illustrates the 
care taken to preserve smooth flow of line and mass. 
Graceful tapering of the end panels breaks the monotony 
of vertical lines, eliminating the "boxy" effect in pedes- 
tals and creating a feeling of strength and solidity. 
Smooth, rounded door fronts and edges of the top accent 
this feeling and create a smart horizontal effect so 
popular in modern decor. 

COLORWISE, Republic 5000 Series Desks and Tables 
represent the latest work of interior stylists with a variety 
of finishes to suit every personal preference and decora- 
tive scheme. Modern, cheerful Platinum Gray excels in 
light-reflecting qualities. Mellow walnut and rich mahog- 



any grains faithfully duplicate the beauty of fine woods. 
Neutral olive green is both pleasant and business-like, 
and new Willow Green and Sahara Beige offer decorator 
colors that enhance the most beautiful office. 

DESIGN WISE, 5000 Series units offer many new com- 
fort, convenience and utility features such as adjustable 
height, more knee room, easy gliding doors and the 
restful "Eye Comfort" top. 

Republic 5000 Series Steel Desks and 
Tallies were designed to promote 
working efficiency instead of serving 
merely as surfaces on which to work. 

VERSATILE, TOO, they are built on the modular prin- 
ciple with interchangeable tops, drawers, pedestals and 
legs, permitting many trim, space-saving arrangements 
and ready interchange of elements to meet changing 
requirements. 

SERVICEWISE, Republic electrically-welded steel con- 
struction and fine baked enamel finishes insure lasting 
beauty and long years of satisfaction.

LONG LIFE FINISH 

Both easily cleaned, the "Eye Comfort" top 
and baked enamel finishes are selected for long 
service. 

DUST-STOP DRAWERS 

Rounded drawer heads overlap pedestal frames 
Y 2 inch on each side to keep out dust. 

NON-BINDING DRAWERS 

All-welded pedestal construction produces a 
one-piece unit of absolute rigidity, eliminating 
diagonal distortion to cause binding or sticking 
of drawers. 



BOX DRAWERS Operate 
Quietly on Nylon Glides. 



Smoothly and 





„ 



FOUR POINT HEIGHT AND LEVELING 
ADJUSTMENT 

Four screw feet permit easy, quick adjustment 
of top height through V/ 2 inches from 29 to 
30J4 inches and serve as a leveling device. 



ADJUSTABLE 
BACK PANEL 

Back panel may be set 
flush with the back of 
the pedestal, or moved 
in four or eight inches. 
Eight - inch adjustment 
permits visitor or sec- 
retary sitting across the 
desk to use the work 
top while leaving plenty 
of leg room for the 
desk user. 



WIRING RACEWAYS 

Raceways provide neat, 
concealed electrical out- 
lets for telephone, buz- 
zer, clock and other 
electrical equipment. 





STAINLESS STEEL TRIM 

Handles and trim are life-time Enduro Stainless 
Steel. Won't tarnish or corrode; never require 
polishing; no plating to wear off. 



CONCEALED CENTER DRAWER AND 
SLIDING REFERENCE SHELVES 

Drawer and shelves telescope into deep roll of 
the top, retaining smooth, unbroken lines.

"EYE-COMFORT" TOP 

Developed by lighting authorities, the beautiful finish 
of Republic 5000 Series Desk and Table tops has a 
light reflectance value of 35%, accepted for maximum 
visual comfort. It affords welcome relief from the 
eye strain felt with darker finishes and helps promote 
worker efficiency. 




AMPLE KNEE SPACE 

The large center drawer telescopes into the top . . . 
does not project down and "steal" knee room. The 
desk top height is quickly adjustable through V/ 2 
inches from 29 inches to 30]^ inches for comfort of 
the user and the space between pedestals allows the 
average person to "swivel around" on the chair with- 
out bumping the desk. 




FULL-OPENING LETTER-SIZE DRAWERS 

Filing drawers on ballbearing roller cradle suspension 
roll out smoothly and easily to their full length, 
making entire contents readily accessible and fully 
visible. Compressor is positive locking; cannot slip 
or slide when engaged. 

FULL DRAWER INTERCHANGEABILITY 

All box and letter-size drawers are fully interchange- 
able, permitting most convenient drawer arrangement. 




NEW LOCKING CONVENIENCE 

The center drawer lock controls the automatic lock- 
ing of the pedestal drawers yet an ingenious arrange- 
ment makes it possible to lock the center drawer 
without locking the pedestal drawers. Another con- 
venience feature permits pedestal drawers to be 
opened without pulling out the center drawer which 
remains closed and flush with the top when unlocked.

OF REPUBLIC 5000 SERIES 
STEEL DESKS AND TABLES 



MATERIAL: 

All steel used in the Republic 5000 series desks 
and tables is rolled in our own mills, and is, there- 
fore, under our direct control. It is especially 
adapted to metal furniture fabrication being cold 
rolled and patent levelled, and free from all 
surface imperfections. 



FINISH: 

Two coats of high quality metallic base synthetic 
enamel, oven baked at the proper temperature, 
which has exceptionally high resistance to wear, 
water and humidity. Standard colors are No. 58 
platinum grey, No. 1300 olive green, No. 45 
grained walnut, and No. 70 grained mahogany, 
No. 189 Sahara beige and No. 190 willow green. 



TOP CONSTRUCTION: 

The heavy 18 gage top sheet is reinforced longi- 
tudinally with four 18 gage channels and trans- 
versely with four 16 gage channels, thus provid- 
ing an unusually strong assembly.

assuring absolute rigidity. Bottoms are com- 
pletely enclosed.
